Char Siew

Char Siew
Pronunciation: chah sioo

This is actually boneless lean pork popular with the Chinese people. It is seasoned with various ingredients such as sugar, five-spices powder, honey, red food colouring, soya sauce and rice wine before being roasted. It is usually sliced and served with rice or noodles. But can also be eaten on its own with a special sweet sauce or even used as a stuffing in buns.

Char Siew traditionally uses only the shoulder cut of the pork, but it is believed that during the ancient times, wild boar meat was used.
